Cristobal a Hurricane; Little Change to 97L

Dr. Jeff Masters, August 26, 2014

Director of Meteorology, Weather Underground

It doesn't look much like hurricane, but the Hurricane Hunters measured surface winds around 75 mph on Monday evening and Tuesday morning in Hurricane Cristobal, making it the third hurricane of the 2014 Atlantic hurricane season. These missions proved the value of hurricane hunter flights, since there is no way that we would have known Cristobal was a hurricane based on satellite data. The storm is stretched out in a long line of heavy thunderstorms, has no eye or low-level spiral bands, and is giving early August's Hurricane Bertha some stiff competition for ugliest Atlantic hurricane of the century.

Hurricane Specialist, The Weather Channel

Hurricane Andrew hit suburban Miami 22 years ago this morning. I can't let the day go by without recognizing some of the many amazing and skilled people who were helped me get through it.

Climate Case Study: California Drought (1)

Dr. Ricky Rood, August 22, 2014

Professor, University of Michigan

I can’t help but think of the carnivores finding the easy pickings of the herds collected around the drying water holes at what would become the Agate Fossil Beds. Then, from that, we don’t have to be beardogs. We humans are unique because of our ability to remember, to reason, to develop and to accumulate knowledge; we have the ability to make decisions that influence the future of our environment.

Five things you need to know before you go smallmouth fishing in NY.

Jim Root, August 18, 2014

Professional Bass Angler

If you're like most people you've probably heard stories of how legendary the smallmouth bass fishing is in NY. From Ontario, Erie, St. Lawrence, Oneida, Champlain, Cayuga, Susquehanna, you can find yourself hooking up with smallmouth in the 5-7+ pound range on every trip if you know what to look for, what to bring, and what to expect. Come unprepared, however, and you will leave with a coldness in your heart as deep as those lakes.
